In order to become a CNA in the state of Colorado, one must first comply with the different requirements of the state. The general rule is that no nurse aide will be allowed to work in a long-term healthcare facility without a license. This means that you will have to take the NNAAP examinations in order to get a license.
The requirements for the examinations are different for certain cases. If you have not yet received any proper education and training, then you must complete a training program and then apply for the exams afterwards. If you on the other hand have taken up and completed nursing programs like LPN, RN, and LPT, then you may directly apply for the exams without going to another training program. You will be required to provide a copy of your license or transcript of records that will prove your training and experience. For more information about the requirements, you can call the Board or Nursing at (303) 894-2437.
